HDD Prediction and Predilection: ASU Edition

This will be brief because I have a plane to catch...

Georgia's offense will come back down to earth, but will still have a good day with a nice run/pass balance. King and Samuel will share the load as the Dawgs try to dictate the tempo of the game early and establish some long scoring drives. Cox will be efficient and Green, Moore and company will have another good night.

Georgia's defense will show that it is not as porous as earlier indication would have us believe. The Dawgs will limit ASU's ground game to under 150 yards and will find a way to finally pressure the passer to disrupt the aerial siege that we have been under from the past couple of weeks. The biggest improvements will begin with the DTs getting a deep vertical push right from the snap and forcing the QB out of the pocket and into the lane of either Justin Houston or Cornelius Washington. Willie will try to get this done with a four man rush but will need to bring an LB on occasion to ensure that he QB can't get too comfortable. Look for our defense to continue to be good on third and long situations. But, getting teams into 3rd and long will be the main task. This is the week that our defense closes the learning gap and gives the fans some reasons to cheer.

Dawgs 34 - ASU 20.
